Description

What does it mean to be white in a society that proclaims race meaningless, yet is deeply divided by race? In the face of pervasive racial inequality and segregation, most white people cannot answer that question. In the second edition of this seminal text, Robin DiAngelo reveals the factors that make this question so difficult: mis-education about what racism is; ideologies such as individualism and colorblindness; segregation; and the belief that to be complicit in racism is to be an immoral person. These factors contribute to what she terms white racial illiteracy. Speaking as a white person to other white people, DiAngelo clearly and compellingly takes readers through an analysis of white socialization. Weaving research, analysis, stories, images, and familiar examples, she provides the framework needed to develop white racial literacy. She describes how race shapes the lives of white people, explains what makes racism so hard to see, identifies common white racial patterns, and speaks back to popular narratives that work to deny racism. Written as an accessible overview on white identity from an anti-racist framework, What Does It Mean to Be White? is an invaluable resource for members of diversity and anti-racism programs and study groups, and students of sociology, psychology, education, and other disciplines. This revised edition features two new chapters, including one on DiAngelo’s influential concept of white fragility. Written to be accessible both within and without academia, this revised edition also features discussion questions, an index, and a glossary.

    A rich white woman paid for by corporations lecturing employees on their racist additives. Never focuses on how companies treat poc workers, instead putting the burden of removing racism on the backs of individuals instead of the powers that be. And you're paying her for it.
  • Want to get noticed? Race Bait. So sad.

    People just love to divide races. How can we work together when so many try to constantly divide?

    What if they’re were books and movements that constantly said “being black is bad, being jewish is bad, being mexican is bad”, people and the media would lose their mind. But white? Eh. Just act like a racist and beat them down. If a cop beats a white person, which is 2x greater chance that a black person.. crickets. btw Where are George Floyd’s legs as he was put on the stretcher? BLM. Both. Legs. Missing.
